The Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to Raetihi on Sunday evening.
A 12-month-old child had suffered a severe allergic reaction at the family home.
With the assistance of the on-scene St John Ambulance crew, and the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic the team was able to treat the young child at the scene before being flown with her mother to Whanganui Hospital for further treatment.
